    June 2007 “changed everything”, according to Apple. The revolutionary iPhone launched, and it was beautiful. The first generation iPhone was a revolutionary device and equipped with a multi-touch screen and only four physical buttons on the handset. Available in 4 GB or 8 GB, both models came with Wi-Fi, 128 MB of RAM and a 413mhz processor. The iPhone was a new concept, in that this device was an iPod, web browser and telephone all in one attractive little package. It was simple however compared to the iPhone of today. The headphone jack was recessed and the 2mpx camera was simple to say the least, in fact, it didn’t even support video. There was also no ability to send  multimedia messages such as photos or audio. Regardless of this, it was still a giant step in the right direction and people started to view their mobile as more than just a telephone device but instead as an everyday accessory.
